A visit to Warratina Lavender Farm is a truly unique experience. Only one hour's drive from central Melbourne, the farm is perfectly situated for day or weekend trips to the Yarra Valley and Dandenong Ranges.
Savour the flavours of local Yarra Valley produce over a glass of regional wine. Why not try the famous lavender ice cream! With six acres of lavender fields, Warratina is a real working lavender farm. Take a personalised tour through the 'Drying Shed' where the lavender is processed directly from the field before being transformed into one of the many products in the unique range ($5 per person, minimum six persons).
The Cottage Gift Shop showcases the extensive product range. They stock a range of lavender plants and can advise you on a variety of choices. Fragrance fills the air in spring and summer when the property is ablaze in a sea of purple. At any time of year, you can escape the hectic pace of daily life and enjoy a stroll through the lavender fields and gardens. Breathe the fresh country air and take in the views of distant mountains.
Either as a single interest visit or as part of a regional tour, group visits can be tailored to suit you.
